    this is a great idea – I like self paced as well as easy to follow!

    Knowing which selection tools to use for various situations and learning better how they work has been one of my biggest challenges with PSE. Thanks for this great article/tutorial!

    I have been working on the first tutorial (Objects with a hard edge) including step 4.
    How do I reposition the clouds so they fit exactly with the background as shown on the magazine photo?
    I wish that step had been shown.

    This is very cool. I encountered one problem: I can’t seem to figure out how to eliminate the path after the text is edited and in place. Please mail me at if you can enlighten me.

    I think this article is the best I’ve seen on completely covering how to use the selection Tools. Thanks a million

    In the last step (6) of Technique 3, what do you mean by “I dragged into the document and…..Layers panel”.? I did not follow this.
